This is a lovely, fully equipped apartment in a quiet neighbourhood within easy walking distance of 'The Strip' and the beach. There are several supermarkets nearby but we tended just to have breakfast in the apartment and ate out the rest of the day. There are lots of well priced restaurants within a couple of minutes walk, covering all tastes.
All in all, we had a fantastic, relaxing stay here.
Just back from this lovely aparment. In a very quiet location, but a stones throw from the main strip. We didn't realise when we booked it though that there was two sides to Albuferia this is the new town, not the old town. So nightlife on the strip is very lively but again apartment is very quiet as set back away from the strip. All you needed in this apartment, plenty of wadrobe space and plenty of hangers for everyone, more than enough which a lot of places fall short on. Washing machine, dish washer, outdoor clothing drying area, two balancony's so sun all day. We ate out so we didn't really use the kitchen apart from making bacon butties in the mornings and a coffee, but if you wanted to cook in then you have everything you want, even a full oven rather than just hobs like a lot of places offer. 2 dining areas one inside one out. Pool very quiet though and some of the residents don't like you using lilo's in the pool. However we didn't use the pool really but you had your own sunbeds if you wanted to use the pool area. Two showers, one bath so never any waiting for the bathroom, we are a family of four and we found it great having two bathrooms. Edward & Darran were there at hand for anything we needed, just a text away. Liz picked us up on time & took us back on time to the airport. Easy to get in with the coded boxes and just all in all a great apartment. No complaints at all. Beach bottom of strip 15 minute walk. And another beach around 20/25 minute walk. We used both. Only 5 euro old town.
What can I say! Absolutely fantastic apartment in a brilliant location. Everything you need is in the apartment, just like home!! We stocked up at the local Pingo Doce with beers, wines and spirits - oh yeah and some food too!! Enjoyed leisurely breakfasts and lunches on the front balcony just watching the world go by and occasional visits to the pool, beach, bars etc. It was our first visit to this apartment and on day 2 we had already booked again for July 2019. Thanks Eddie for a perfect holiday!! Joanne, Dave and Angela
Just returned from a 16 night stay in this fabulous apartment. Communication with Eddie was excellent and any queries were dealt with promptly. We took advantage of the arranged transfers/day trips and Billy and Liz were very helpful and reliable.The apartment is spacious, clean and very well equipped. Lovely pool area and the designated sun loungers (mattresses provided) an added bonus.
The apartment is situated just off the upper/quieter end of the strip and while there are numerous mini markets close by we used the Pingo Doce supermarket (10min walk) and a Continente hypermarket (20 min walk). Taxi rank is nearby if you wish to visit the Old Town (5 euros) or a tourist train which has 3-4 stops costs 20 euros (4 people) for all day use. Numerous restaurants within a short walk, our favourites being Garfolandia, The Ganga Indian Kitchen and the Cockerel.
We visited Praia da Oura beach on 2 occasions (15 min walk) but used the tuk-tuk on the way back up the hill! (15 euros).
We would highly recommend this apartment for a family holiday and would love to stay here again. Thank you Eddie and Darran.
This two bed apartment is spacious and well equipped for a family stay. It allows you to either cook in or visit local restaurants to eat. Visit the old town for about 5/6 euros (5 passengers) in the evening. Local restaurants recommended by the apartment owners all proved to live up to their reviews. My children (young adults and teenagers) visited the Aquashow water park and enjoyed a great day out. The strip is a short walk away if you are looking for lively nights out. The shared pool was lovely to use on the hot days and we actually had it to ourselves at times as the portugese visitors seem to prefer the beach and only came to the pool at about 4pm in the afternoon. The bull ring is situated a few streets away so we attended the bullfighting which occurs each Friday night. An experience which we enjoyed but may not be for everyone's. The bull is not injured in the event. I would recommend this apartment and would stay again.
